Play • 27 min

Joining Anthony for today's episode of VETchat is Sergio Silvetti, Veterinary Surgeon at Rutland House Referrals.

In this episode, Anthony and Sergio discuss one of Sergio's recent cases, Eddie the tortoise. Eddie had unfortunately escaped his enclosure one night and his owners found him outside the next morning with serious injuries to his front legs. Sergio explains what steps he took with this case and what led to the idea of attaching some plastic wheels from a toy to Eddie's shell. They also discuss how best to approach exotic patients, the importance of good husbandry, how to look after tortoises during their winter hibernation, and ways in which we can educate our clients to provide the best care for their exotic pets.
